Smiley Culture: Following an investigation, the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said the operation at the home of the singer, whose real name was David Emmanuel, was “not satisfactory”. At least one of the four Metropolitan Police officers involved has been criticised by the IPCC after Mr Emmanuel died from a single stab wound to the heart while police searched his Surrey home on 15 March this year. But the criticism is not strong enough to initiate misconduct procedures, according to the IPCC. The only action the officers can now face is if the Met initiates an “unsatisfactory performance procedure”, which can result in dismissal, but which the IPCC cannot direct.
